5. Bobby confronts Clay — Bobby and Clay found a moment alone, which is when Bobby decided to confront Clay about what he knew, which was essentially everything. “I really hope you are as smart as you think you are,” Bobby said. “I am really tired of burning friends.” Clay’s eloquent response: “Me too.” It used to be that characters on this show could hold a secret for a few seasons; not they can’t keep a secret more than an episode. Anyway, Bobby didn’t do anything with the information, and Clay basically waved off the fact that Bobby knew that he put the Nomads into motion.
6. Welcome to the ICKY Portion of the Recap — Tara weaseled her way back into see Otto last night, and she did NOT use the perfume — as some in the comments wrongly and ABRASIVELY suggested — to kill Otto. No. You give Sutter way too much credit. She really planned to use the perfume to remind Otto of the things he loves in order to get him to drop his RICO testimony. It worked, too, after Tara held Otto’s head, AND HE JERKED OFF UNTIL HE BROKE DOWN INTO SOBS.
You have no idea how happy I was that I couldn’t find a GIF of this scene.
Folks, if anyone asks: This is the definitive moment that Sons of Anarchy jumped the rails.
7. Tara Needs Self-Love, Too — The moment with Otto had a profound effect on Tara, who later in the episode dabbed a little of that perfume on herself and went to town on her own fun spot. REMINDER: That perfume smells like patchouli and cum.
8. Oh, and that Oregon Job Is Back in Play — At the end of last season, there was some discussion that Tara might take a position in Oregon, but then Clay orchestrated a hit on her, which resulted in her hand getting busted. Last night, the job offer was put back on the table, just in time for the final two episodes of the season.
